Care at NUH



Our department is well-known for practising evidence-based medicine (EBM) and has developed a core pool of experienced facilitators. We pride ourselves in teaching EBM to students and clinical practitioners, both locally and regionally.

The ability to appraise evidence provides a natural segue to producing evidence through our clinical research.

International networks

We have made contributions to several international consortia, such as steering committee roles in the Asia, Australia, and New Zealand Dyspnea in Emergency Departments (AANZDEM) and Headache in Emergency Departments (HEAD) study groups.

We continually seek collaborations locally and internationally from academia and industry partners to broaden our scientific contributions in emergency medicine and beyond.


We have been successful in national level grants such as the National Medical Research Council New Investigator Grant, Transition Award, Health Services Research Grant and Clinical Innovator Development Award.
